CASS Benefit Show @ The Black Cat! Sunday, 8/26

Three awesome bands (!) from the NY/DC areas are holding a benefit show on 8/26 to help us launch RightRides DC, which will provide free, safe, and late night ride to women and LGBTQ individuals. The program has been a goal of ours for a long time now, and support is critical! Tickets are $10, and CASS staff will be there tabling with materials and free to answer any of your questions. We hope to see you there!

ABOUT RIGHT RIDES DC
CASS has been working hard to bring RightRides, which started in 2004 in New York City, to DC. Our RightRides DC program will provide free, safe, and late-night transportation for women and LGBTQ individuals. These are populations that CASS recognizes often lack extra funds for taxis and for whom walking home or taking public transportation alone late at night is particularly dangerous. RightRides DC will organize volunteer drivers and navigators to operate a fleet of cars donated by a car-sharing program.

ABOUT CASS
Since 2009, CASS has fought street harassment in America’s capital by conducting training, lobbying for policy, and empowering Washingtonians to speak out against gender-based public sexual harassment and assault. CASS is 100% volunteer-led and operated.

A HUGE THANKS to everyone who made it out to Black Cat last night! We were thrilled to see the turnout. What’s more, the bands were GREAT. All three dazzled us with a mix of fun, thoughtful & empowering lyrics. We’re thrilled to announce that we made over $400 to go toward RightRides DC.

That’s over $400 to help give DC residents safe rides home! 

Coup Sauvage, Hand Grenade Job, Queer Pressure: We couldn’t have done it without you. Special thanks to our board member (and Hand Grenade Job member!), Erin McCarley, for organizing the awesome event.
